The Gordon's Cup Cocktail

Since getting back from England I have had a renewed appreciation for gin and gin based cocktails.  This is a very good one, with lots of lemon or lime juice and some muddled cucumber.  A great summer drink.

3 slices cucumber, divided (reserve 1 for garnish)
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 oz Hendrick’s gin
.75 oz fresh lime or lemon juice
Cucumber slice, to garnish
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Muddle together two cucumber slices and syrup in cocktail shaker tin. Add gin, lime juice, and ice, and shake well for 10 seconds. Fine-strain cocktail into a glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with cucumber slice, a pinch of salt, and a twist of pepper
